Abstract

Raman-scattering activity in clear ocean waters is further documented from Monte Carlo simulations and optical data that are collected in the Sargasso Sea. A method is proposed, based on the anomalous absorption coefficient for a nonconservative irradiance field, to assess the percentile composition of internal radiant emission for the irradiance field at any depth.
